When Hollywood stepped into the new millennium, it looked like Hollywood had a difficulty of making a new original movie. They has been keeping making sequels and remake old movies.

They bought countless of Asian horror films, and turned them in to Hollywood style, such as the first Thai turned Hollywood, Shutter. Thai Shutter is one of the most successful Thai movie of all time. American Shutter, on another hand, didn’t leave a memorable foot print to this genre.

Later, they begin to see a shadowy figure on their photograph, but soon after, …show more content…
Both films have a different cinematic style. For the original, I have a feeling like the filmmaker didn’t do it well on lighting. Most of the time, scenes looked dark, low contrast, and underexposed, but even it is lack of lighting, it does enhance viewers sensation of frighten. In contrast of that, the new version had done a better job on lighting up scenes than the original. The film has more contrast. The film is in a balance between white and dark. Colorful objects has added to frame. In addition, the new version has created an effective mise en scene than the original has. The original is not the winner on light up the film, though it is done well on other …show more content…
Which conclude in they are equal in this criteria. However, on plot and story line is another story. The reboot is following exactly same plot. They doesn’t creatively include anything new. The turning point of both movies are when they couple crash the girl. Even though they are using same turning point, but in my opinion the suspense on the remake doesn’t hook my anticipation as the original does. In addition to this, the development after that, the original is more powerful, and every elements are making a good sense of understand story which conclude in a dramatic ending. Despite of that, the remake has lost during the way. It doesn’t build viewers anticipation to the film, thought it end up the quite a bit

    Mediocre films are much weaker in their storyline compared to fantastic movies. Decent motion pictures often times are easy to follow along with the plot, but they are missing the mind blowing factor. For example, Something Borrowed was a mediocre film because it never had the mind-boggling moment. This movie was very easy to follow along with, which is why I consider it mediocre. Now obviously the visual effects in mediocre films are not as strong as those in fantastic movies.…

    The Giver: Book Vs. Movie

    While “The Giver,” is not a true story, it is an excellent example for this. The book, as many have read, is not like the movie. Or shall I say, the movie is not like the book. It was exaggerated to gain more interest, to make it more appealing on the big screen and to wrap it up in the time they are allowed to use for the film. If every book, that became a movie, was followed exactly in film as it did in writing, there would be multiple films for one story.…

    I felt as if the producers over used dramatic sound effects to make up for the lack of dialogue which again in turn made the film seem cliche and not very funny at all. I am the type of person to find nearly everything funny except when it is tried too hard to be funny. Also, I felt as if the sole purpose of all silent films were to be funny and had no real plot. This film had just the right amount of comedy, some parts were funny but it had a real plot. The comedic parts tied in well with the plot.…

    20) Halloween http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0077651/?ref_=nv_sr_2 Sure this movie did keep me on my toes but I really didn 't like most of the things that made it up. The movie did have a small budget but that doesn 't have to do with the grading of this movie. I didn 't like the direction, I felt like the direction of the movie was a bit slow it really doesn 't build up in till they first murder of the babysitter. I think that it takes to much time on stocking the main character. I felt like the movie had some weird shots of the most important sense like the panning out of the killer and the sense in the house.…

    Film Noir and Neo-Film Noir: The Revival of the Film Genre From the 1940s through the 1950s, Film Noir became incredibly popular and people thought that this genre of film would never end. Unfortunately, as the present became the past, people had a change in taste resulting in the demise of Film Noir. At the turn of the millennium, a revival of Film Noir started to take place called Neo-Film Noir. Even though Film Noir movies, including “Illegal,” and Neo-Film Noir movies, including “Bat-Man: The Dark Knight Rises,” are very similar, they do differ from each other regarding the plot line, lighting, camera angles, and characteristics. In Film Noir, the plot line of one film is actually very similar to other films within the same genre.…

    He would go on to be regarded as one of the most prolific horror movie directors of all time, bringing iconic horror movie villains, such as Freddy Krueger and Ghostface, to the big screen. The Last House on the Left, however, would be more than just a stepping stone for his career, but also launched Sean Cunningham’s career. Serving as a producer for the film, Sean Cunningham would go on to create the Friday the 13th franchise, which he continues to oversee today. It’s fitting that both would go on to have prominent roles in horror considering the effect The Last House on the Left had on the genre. The film is regarded as one of the original films to give rise to the horror exploitation genre, as well as fright films.…

    While the love was better in the 2013 version, Mia Farrow played a better Daisy. Her acting was not the greatest with the overdramatic ness but she got the personality of daisy down. I think both Nick’s were played very well and i think they both did a fantastic job. Another thing different about the movies is what they chose to emphasise. In the old movie Gatsby’s dad goes to his funeral, in the new movie he does not hes all alone.…

    One of the greatest strength of the text was having rich details to understand the personalities of the characters. Also, the bond that Penelope had with Odysseus. One weakest that the text had was it felt rushed towards the end. In the movie, the ending happened gradually but in the text, I felt that the ending was rushed. The book could have flown better at the end.…
